There is no trail to Reynolds’ summit. Photo: Stacy Wahlberg. Steve is leading the way up. i asked to lead us down. Two days later, socked in with wildfire smoke, i solo-summited. Not another soul on the mountain. Stunning accomplishment.

HQ Glacier fever.

In preparation for GNP, there are many belongings to shed. Will even more be shed (assuming) after my return?

As close as humanly possible

paperback book
Top line: “A deep exploration of a life lived as close to nature as humanly possible.”

As close as humanly possible.

In other words, as far away from humans as humanly possible.

Or, as far away from convenience as humanly possible.

Or, as close to our origin story as humanly possible.

You are free to reprioritize

It won’t be long before these are party of two reservations. Maybe. 

You are free when you can instantly rattle off your priorities, in priority order. 

If you are there now, sweet!

If not, today is a new day.

Are you contagious?

Thinking in five year terms is poignant when planning for retirement. How will you continue to use money once you no longer earn a paycheck. 

We are so used to living day to day and week to week. 

Moving to year to year or decade to decade, we must think radically differently.  

High odds we do not have a role model or coach who gifts us with a crystal ball.
